14Days of Wellbeing – First Week Round Up

14 days feature


Welcome to the second week of #14days of Wellbeing, an online wellbeing marathon that helps you to kick start your summer. Last week we shared a lot of exciting and exclusive material, including extracts from our backlist, videos and relaxation exercises.
We have been offering the chance to explore Gateways to Health, a great series from our backlist that includes succinct and effective practical exercises that can be performed anywhere and develop your mind-body balance if practiced everyday.

Swami Saradananda has been busy preparing a series of short videos that will teach you about the practice of mudras, delving into some of the specific positions, and including practical exercises to increase flexibility in your hands and fingers.

Sound is a fundamental part of who we are. Our brains have evolved to respond to different sounds in certain ways – while a scream might send a surge of adrenaline into our system, the soothing rhythm of a lullaby has a relaxing effect on our body and mind and encourages us to sleep. We respond to sound not only with our consciousness, but also with our physical selves. We have been sharing Lyz Cooper’s sound healing exercises and awakenings sounds, inviting you to pay attention to the sounds that surrounds you, and the emotions they trigger.

We have been working with Tamara Russell to find the best way to incorporate some mindfulness exercises in your #14days practice. How does your mind react to the challenge of learning a new movement? Is this a reaction you see elsewhere in your life at all? Like Tamara Russell’s cup of tea and paintbrush, we shared Tamara’s mindfulness exercises that can be fitted into your daily routine.

Working with our sister imprint Nourish Books we have been sharing nutritional advise and tips everyday, including Christine Bailey’s healthy recipes, Saimaa Miller’s recipes and detox tips, and Renee McGregor advice on sport nutrition.
